Twelve-year-old Joseph would love to have a Big Brother to get him out of the house and explore new interests and opportunities.  WFFT's Kristen Kirchhaine spent time with him at Crazy Pinz. 

Joseph said he spends most of his spare time watching T.V. and playing video games. He also likes to hang out with friends, go to the park, and watch movies. Comedy, action, or scary movies specifically. But Joseph would like to have a Big Brother to explore new activities with, to talk to and to lean on.

"Like homework or if I need help with something."

Joseph is the man of his house.  It is just him, his mom, and his sister.  A Big Brother would be a positive male influence and someone to help him see beyond his everyday world. It's been about a year since Joseph signed up for the program and hopes his wait comes to an end soon. To learn more about mentoring, or becoming a Big Brother to Joseph, call Big Brothers Big Sisters at 456-1600.
